GPA?which is most important?

  1. Which GPA will the Anesthetist program look at most? My GPA from my undergraduate school that I got my Health Science Bachelors Degree from or will they focus mostly on my GPA from the Accelerated BSN in the Nursing school? Or both?

    Depends on the program. One program said they look at the last 120 credits and use that to from the GPA. So for me it would be about 60 credits of accelerated BSN, 30 pre req and the rest would come from the last part of my BS degree. Another program said they look at the accelerated BSN only. And the last said they look at each applicant individually.

    I think that the program will look at your potential ability, even though you may have had some less than perfect grades in the past. For instance, if you did poorly your first few years of school, and then turned out A's for 3 solid years, then I think they'll take that into consideration. Like the other guy said, too, they might just look at the last 120 units, or they might look only at nursing school, or whatever. But if you want my opinion, they'll look at your science grades from your prereq's and your nursing GPA. That seems to be the most important to a lot of schools, anyways. I wouldn't let it weigh you down, though. The biggest thing NA schools want to know is that you'll be able to succeed in their program and make it look good, and if you're able to get good grades then you're able to get good grades and they won't worry about the blemishes.
